Search frictions and aggregate dynamics, 18–19 October 2012, HelsinkiDynamic macro-models that allow for search and matching frictions not only in labour but also credit markets could improve our understanding on the dynamic interaction between macroeconomy and capital markets. The need for such joint modelling has been highlighted by the most recent financial crisis. This theme will be explored from various viewpoints at a conference organized jointly by the Bank of Finland (Research), the CEPR (Centre for Economic Policy Research) and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
For the call for papers, please visit the conference website. The deadline for submissions is 31 May 2012.
China's financial system and internationalization of the renminbi, 17–18 September 2012, HelsinkiAs China’s importance in the world economy has grown, so has interest in its financial sector. Furthermore, the on-going liberalization of China’s capital flows and the internationalization of the Chinese renminbi will have far-reaching consequences for the Chinese financial system. These topics will be discussed at a research workshop hosted by the Bank of Finland Institute for Economies in Transition (BOFIT) and organized by the Central bank-Academia Network on the Chinese economy, a joint venture between the Chinese Economic Association (Europe) and BOFIT.
